This weekend I had the opportunity to travel to the yearly LiMux sprint to spend some time with my fellow kubuntu devs and talk about the potential issues we’re facing with the CI system and improving the Debian CI system to be more robust.
Some of the more important issues that were discussed included figuring out a way to improve file tracking in packages, so that the CI can detect file conflicts without having to actually install all the packages. Another important topic that was bought up was using the packagekit and appstream with Muon. This is apparently being held back on account of Ubuntu Touch, but is slated to be resolved soon. Once the necessary packagekit packages are updated, we can play around with the idea of perhaps shipping a muon using the packagekit backend on the next Kubuntu release.
As usual, the LiMux folks are a great bunch to hang out with, and I happened to notice something on the wall of their office while lunching with them. It was a clock. Not just a regular clock though, a timey wimey clock. I’ll let a picture do more of the talking here :
Told you. Timey Wimey.
I got quite the headache looking at the clock, but my fascination with it stuck. So once I was back home, I hacked up the regular Plasma 5 analog clock and made it timey-wimey too 😉
You can download and install the clock from here. Clocks and Carrots, a weekend well spent I say. As usual, you can find me and the other kubuntu devs in #kubuntu-devel on IRC or on firstname.lastname@example.org in case you want to reach out to us about Kubuntu, Clocks or Carrots.
